Featured in December’s Model Engineers’ Workshop Magazine (No. 288, page 13), one of our customers has written an article on how he has created a Micrometer Roller Box for ‘running down’ long thing workpieces, with the help of our 25mm (1") Digital Depth Gauge.

As mentioned in the article, a Roller Box is used on a capstan or turret lathe, which brings the next tool into operation as the turret is racked to and from. Our Digital Depth Gauge features a small diameter round pin which makes it easy to measure the depth of smaller spaces, perfect for the application Howard Lewis was using it for. It was used to ensure the slot depth in the tool bits was correct.
